Synopsis

Amazon.com
Dionne Warwick's vocals were never more strong, more vulnerable than when she sang the songs of Burt Bacharach and Hal David--and, oh, yeah, "Who Can I Turn To" and the theme from "Valley of the Dolls," the two non-Bacharach/David songs included among the 24 singles collected here. Both technically and emotionally, this was an unstoppable team: from the drama of "Don't Make Me Over" to the tongue-in-cheek backing singers on "Are You There (With Another Girl)," the barely veiled civil-rights message of "Reach Out for Me" to the deceptively bouncy "Do You Know the Way to San Jose," this CD sheds light on one of the most perfect marriages of pop form and content this side of Sinatra's classic Capitol work. --Rickey Wright

Music that wafted down from Heaven
martrobber | Birmingham, AL | 12/03/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Since Dionne Warwick found it necessary to consult psychics later in her career, how I wish she had done it much earlier! Perhaps one of those fortune tellers -- if they had been worth their money -- would have told her to NEVER leave the tunesmith team of Bacharach & David!! With their compositions and her voice, the last great chapter of the American Popular Songbook was written. The sophistication, expression, and downright aching that many of these songs exude is undeniable. 'Anyone Who Had a Heart,' for example, drips with such poignancy that it'll stop you dead in your tracks. And that goes for most tunes on this cd. Thank God that Warwick, Bacharach, and David got together to create such wonderful, sublime music!"
